miss, is what would bill clinton have been without a second term. it wasn't the lewinsky issue that matters in the end but when he left office we had a surplus and that the triangulation worked and was able to have a balanced budget and couldn't have done it without a second term. we don't dwell on ronald reagan's iran-contra debacle. the fact of the matter is reagan's great diplomacy with mikhail gorbachev, margaret thatcher said reagan won the cold war without firing a single shot and occurred because reagan is taking the trips and meeting with gorbachev to end the cold war. but the point i'm making is this notion of the division of first and second terms and all the polls we see is a little bit overwrought. if second terms were so bad, f.d.r. woopt have had a third or fourth there is truth you lose some of your l.s.u.er in the sense barack obama won't run again and people realize his power is limited, his clock is running so it's sometimes harder to do legislative deals in the second term, on the other hand, barack obama can sign executive order after executive order and he will

. president clinton in 1998 launched tomahawk missiles based on the embassies that were blown up in east africa. and they hit targets, and if you had asked any of us in this room the next morning whether america was at war, i trust that all this would've said no. we fired some missiles, but we are not at war. if you would ask people near the impact, they would have a different view. so the danger is that could potentially lower the willingness to use force and not think of it as war. and yet you build up enemies and people that think they are at war with you. when did al qaeda go to war with the united states? the average answer is 9/11. but they declared war with us in 1996. most of us did not get the memo. they attacked and they were at war with us. there is always danger in both ways. the danger of all the technology is that tiger has the same potential. anytime you can sit back and in relative safety and do something with someone off, you don't necessarily feel that if your son or daughter was going into the target area and you were going to spend a sleepless night worrying about the

with then-president bill clinton. we balanced the budget five of those fourteen years. it meant that there was compromise. this requires compromise. this requires republicans stepping forward with some ideas about how to keep essential services of government running at the level that people have been accustomed to. this is not rocket science. this is people coming together the way that other congresses have done to solve big issues. i suggest that my former colleagues on the republican side go see the movie "lincoln," because in the movie "lincoln," it shows how hard it was back then to get things done. but what lincoln did is he gathered people around him the way that i believe president obama is doing by calling republicans, talking to them, trying to work with them. and when that happens, big things get solved. the fiscal cliff got solved because people started talking to one another. so this can happen again. yes, ma'am. >> yes, have your phones been ringing from members of the public? and if so, what are they saying? >> i'm sorry have -- >> have your phones been ringing fro
